Arduino library for LED strips and pixels using LPD8806 (and probably LPD8803/LPD8809)

branch: master

Added theaterChase and theaterChaseRainbow

Added two new effect functions. theaterChase does a
theater-marquee-style chase, and theaterChaserainbow combines the
theaterChase with the rainbow effect

Arduino library for LPD8806

This Library was written for the LPD8806 PWM LED driver chips, strips and pixels. But the LPD8803/LPD8809 will probably work too.
